House Majority PAC and Priorities USA announced a joint digital ad campaign hitting 10 House Republicans for the “Age Tax” provision of the GOP’s health care plan, “which would allow insurance companies to charge people 50 and over premiums up to five times more than younger people.”

Targeted districts are those of Reps. Martha McSally (AZ-02), Jeff Denham (CA-10), David Valadao (CA-21), Mimi Walters (CA-45), Darrell Issa (CA-49), Mario Diaz-Balart (FL-25), Tim Walberg (MI-07), Mike Bishop (MI-08), Dave Trott (MI-11) and Sean Duffy (WI-07). (release)

Meanwhile, American Bridge launched a new campaign hitting Reps. Fred Upton (MI-06), Rodney Frelinghuysen (NJ-11), Lee Zeldin (NY-01), Dan Donovan (NY-11), and Barbara Comstock (VA-10) “using an online video and digital ads to accuse them of hiding from their constituents.” (McClatchy)

ON BOARD. Rep. Seth Moulton (D-MA 06) endorsed three new House candidates: Former De­fense De­part­ment of­fi­cial Dan Fee­han (D), who is running for Rep. Tim Walz’s (D-MN 01) open seat; Ret. Lt. Col. Amy McGrath (D), who is challenging Rep. Andy Barr (R-KY 06); and Army veteran Aaron Scheinberg (D), who hopes to unseat Rep. Alex Mooney (R-WV 02). (McClatchy)

LOOKING FORWARD. Former GA-06 nominee Jon Ossoff (D) will participate in a Netroots Nation panel discussion on how Democrats can win in the 2018 midterms. (Vox)
